Now that the order of the draft has been decided thanks to the Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks, here are the remaining selections in the 2015 NHL Draft.

C. Sweden. Joel Eriksson Ek. 27. player. 105. The Anaheim Ducks have great examples of skilled power forwards already on the team and Joel Eriksson Ek is a great addition to the crop. He possesses power like a pro, but he also has a powerful shot and powerful strides in his skating.<a href=

Waterloo Black Hawks, USHL. Brock Boeser. 28. player. 23. Brock Boeser is a natural goal scorer who put up 30+ for the Waterloo Black Hawks of the USHL this past season. Boeser is committed to the University of North Dakota, but the Lightning have a promising, young NHL and can take the wait on Boeser. <a href=. RW

G. Russia. Ilya Samsonov. 29. player. 68. Although I don’t personally agree with drafting a goalie in this particular draft, the Flyers have had pretty terrible luck in acquiring goalies and they have a chance to not mess things up when it comes to goalies. Samsonov is a big goalie at 6’3″ and 210 lbs, but he shows athleticism in his game. He isn’t afraid to make the desperation save when out of position. <a href=

player. 121. After the Coyotes take Hanifin with their 1st, 1st round pick, I think they will go with the project in Daniel Sprong. Sprong has been defined by many as an X-Factor, for he has shown a lack in a 200 feet game. The Coyotes already have prospects like Anthony Duclair, Max Domi, and Christian Dvorak so they have the depth to take a chance on Sprong.<a href=. RW. Charlottetown Islanders, QMJHL. Daniel Sprong. 30
